That was not for the first time but being in Eilat i always visit the Observatory. It seems to me the best of such kind. New shark tank is very interesting. All the observatory is worth of the whole day and repeated visits.

Interesting and educational visit to a cross between an aquarium and a museum. Timing was great since there were absolutely no line ups! The extra 10 sheqel charge for the movie about shark life was well worth it, and recommend following the times listed for...More

Unfortunately it's expensive. Fortunately it's worth the money. The new sharks aquarium is a nice addition to what they already had.
